Election Night: MAGA Republican Troy Balderson Holds Ohio CD-12, Schuette Wins Michigan Gov Primary…

An important election night finds MAGA Trump Republicans holding and advancing positions in Ohio (CD12), Michigan (Schuette), Missouri (Hawley) and possibly Kansas.

The most watched race was the special election in Ohio CD-12.  Democrats spent a great deal of money supporting Danny O’Conner; the race was close, but it appears Troy Balderson has won with the lift of President Trump’s recent campaign.

      Keep praying, uplift others with love and optimism, campaign your heart out to ensure a Trump win on November 6th. Even a swamp Republicans win counts as a Trump win on election day. MAGA depends on what we do each day.

      Indeed! With each withdrawal of consent for the dirty stinking commies diktat they use to destroy America, in particular those of us Deplorable’s, who actually make up The Honorable Resistance to tyranny, we destroy the lefts illusion of legitimacy. Very important thing right there. The most important thing being is withdrawal of Consent. The most powerful political weapon ever devised.

      Now I’m just a welder with 7 grade formal education, but it doesn’t take to rocket science to see Mr. Trump, Lord keep him safe please, has one heck of an Ace up his sleeve. The human extinction movement is literally a domestic enemy, an enemy President Trump swore an oath on The Bible to defend our Republic from.
      Well, that Ace Mr. Trump has happened to be the Constitutional act of declaring Martial Law. And if there was ever an honest man who held the office of POTUS it is Mr. Trump. free all 65 million of us trusted him enough to vote for him to save us from the Clinton regime and their deep state. Another domestic enemy.
      President Trump could clean house of the corruption, drain the swamp, build and man The Wall, restore our economy to the gold standard, rid us of the regulatory administrative tyranny of the useless tyrannical agencies eating out our existence and strip mining us of our hard earned wealth.
      Send all the illegal invaders back, sift thru the ones who where illegally granted US citizenship, send them packing too. Get rid of the 5th column commies brainwashing our youth and kids in college and public school. Return the sovereign power of the individual states to its people, create a new economy, based on unfettered economic freedom, the most important element of Liberty. Eliminate the economic tyranny of the large corporate tyrants who have ruled thru economic monopoly and extortion.
      Getting rid of all these forms of power throughout our government gets rid of billions and billions of costs of running a centralized monstrosity, the cost of all this corruption, where the only revenue required is for protecting our borders, free passage of the sea and airways, and seeing that the only interests protected are the interests of the people.
      Revamp the Congress, with specific very limited powers. Make recalls of elected representatives only the preview of the peoples will, with term limits, appointed unelected government employees have to come from the ranks of the people, voted for in the same elections as Congressman. But can be fired in a separate system of trust and performance. After all they work for us, only we pay their salaries.
      Once established, Congress has no provisions or power to change or eliminate the rules and laws, without a convention of the people only of each or all states. Elected reps can only petition we the people. Unelected employees have to petition our elected reps, who must petition we the people of each or all states.
      There can be no wiggle room for any employee or rep to bypass our will as the governors of our state and republic.
      Upon these constitutional mandates, the states governments can be formed chaged abolished and reformed, to be hold the same accountability and Limited trust, always at the discretion and regards of the will of the people.
      We must learn our lessons, human nature such as it is, can never be trusted with any power over each of us and our primal rights.
      Even our military must be of the people. Each state having its own militia, constructed upon the only law that matters, Consent of the people, formed each company from each county or precinct, a merit and honor system which determines ranks and positions, determined by anonymous ballet. A tribal counsel of captains from each precinct overseeing the respect and honor of the merit system.
      Each Militia member to provide at his cost, or assitance from his family tribe community, a basic small unit infantrymen’s field equipment, rifle, pistol, ammo load out, rations, and suitable clothes for the season at hand. Each man of all states to perform 1 year basic training and active duty, after wich each precinct to perform a length of duty each year, or rotations, which maintain a steady full combat ready company at all times present to defend their state, county, precinct tribe community, with all else, the whole of the militia ready 24-7-365 as minute men. This is a lifetime duty. The loyalty and honor, the costs of keeping a ready militia of states size is wisely shared B all equally. Only the President as Coomander in Chief can activate Statrs Militia to serve as Republic Forces. The vigilance and ready state of such a States Militia is in itself a most effective bulwark to Foriegn and domestic incursion or war.
      There is to be no federal courts system. No regulatory agencies. No armed law enforcement agencies or agents. A suitable size and organization of Marines, Border Protection Infantry Army, and a Navy, at the Commander in Chiefs-POTUS service to fulfill the base line duties of protecting our borders, declared ocean boundaries, open international seaways for the sole interests of the Republic of Sovereign States, and an integral base of operational Army to which the States Militia compose the requirements of active or threatening military action. Similar criteria and SOP for Air Defence and Ground Attack/Support, attached and under the control of their respective states Militia, passing on to higher command as suitable to required action and support.
      The idea in all this is it must be, has to not only be the will and Consent of the people of the free states, but a vested active interest and participation of the people.
      Without this system of Confederation of States, we will again repeat all the mistakes of our first Republic. If wecare to be free people, free to self determine our liberty, there are very limited options, which history proves out clearly before our very living eyes.

      If they want us to believe that’s true, and the Republican won anyway, then the only explanation is that at least half of them are #walkaway dems who came out to vote for Balderson. There is no other reasonable explanation, if they want to claim that number is legit.

      The president said that there was early voting, which tends to favor the dems. Balderson was not doing well, something like 64-34 (? not remembering the exact numbers; can be found on trump’s twitter feed) and that is why he decided to go to the Ohio Rally. After that Rally, Balderson’s numbers grew greatly!

      But Obama’s approval rate at this point in his presidency was met with historic 2010 losses to the GOP. I think the GOP can hold the House this fall and pick up 3-5 senate seats, but it’ll be a nail biter. The Kavanaugh confirmation helps in the senate by putting “moderate” Dems on the hot seat, but it might hurt a few GOP House candidates by leaving some voters thinking that conservatives’ ascendancy in the senate and courts should be tempered by electing more democrats to the House.

Beto is a socialist type that even Obama did not endorse so as not to reveal his true socialist leanings. Texas is still about God, guns and religion. Dims are trying hard to flip it, WILL NOT HAPPEN! People know there is no other choice but Cruz and will vote accordingly. Senator Cruz has asked for President Trumps help and that is all the base needs to energize itself in Texas! Bring the rallies on!

The National Enquirer photo identifies another man (circled in white) as Cruz. Caused a big pre-election flap, but Ted himself, with weasely lawyerly acumen, just said stuff like “how low could DJT go!” with faux outrage, but his campaign was DONE by 10 o’clock that morning. The photos online are even clearer, with Raphael Cruz’s head in profile very clearly, that distinctive wavy hairline so evident. Ted was screwed.

          Most important: I think we have to counter the Democrat absentee ballot early voting strategy with the exact same thing, or better. They had people out early making sure people FILLED OUT absentee ballot applications. May have even delivered them for all I know. This was notable, and I think instrumental.

          The ATTACK O’Connor part of the strategy was strong (especially toward the end, when reality caught up to the earlier negativity against him, as it had been starting to give O’Connor some “poor underdog” status before he backtracked on Pelosi, and inflated his resume), but the SUPPORT Balderson strategy wasn’t good enough. Hard to say what was wrong there, but I think overall his communications need to show him off when he’s at ease and making MAGA sense, and NOT when he’s just nervously speaking at a rally.

          The fight with Lenaghan was crucial to loss of support. I don’t know the inside story on that, but the MAGA OH GOP does, and needs to figure out what caused it and take care of it.

          Also, the “what will the neighbors think if you don’t vote” strategy was just weird. The latter made some sense at a deep level, but I think it may have backfired overall. The INITIAL “I’m just taking a quick look at this mailer” reaction was NEGATIVE, IMO, and that’s not good, because mailers are supposed to work on the quick look psychology.

          Starting to think that the local NeverTrump strategy was to sit on their hands early, play MAGA against MAGA in the primary, weakening MAGA, then hobble whoever won with sly shin-kicks from outside, in coordination with Democrat attacks on Jordan and local press building up O’Connor.

          MAGA is going to have to TAKE OVER the ground game, just like they did for TRUMP in 2016. We cannot count on some parts of the party, sad to say, and their effects need to be neutralized. We have some very good Trump people running it, but I think Kasich has a “kneel for the anthem” strategy in place, too, on key players, that sabotages things quietly.

          NeverTrump takes the money and delivers broken Chinese parts.

          I think Kasich’s links to DiFi’s China need some exposing. Timeline his comments – it’s clear he’s a gimp for Beijing. All his talk is about “Russia Russia Russia”, but his comments on policy against Trump timeline very nicely with China’s side when you look at Sundance’s posts on Trump vs. China.

          CHINA is Kasich’s new Lehman Brothers.

              Some can be saved. Some cannot. Those who cannot see that we have a controlled press, cannot see what is happening.

          Roy Moore is ALMOST a good candidate. But not quite. I think he draws wishful thinking support.

          All culture warriors are unlikable to the other side, or those who have been influenced by the other side in ways they don’t self-perceive (religion is especially true in this regard – the cultural Marxists have been expert in shaming the religious against religion). But the best culture warriors (like Trump) know how to take culture war to the next level, and get the next level of likability BECAUSE they are unlikable to their enemies and wishy-washy compatriots.

          Roy Moore needed to be more like Trump, but was not capable of HIMSELF making his enemies look foolish or evil. THAT takes a certain amount of sharpness Moore simply didn’t have. Moore’s allies were able to make Moore’s enemies look evil and slightly stupid, but Moore needed to do his part, and he simply could not – thus he was a weak candidate. Imagine Moore with James Wood’s Twitter ability to SKEWER his enemies on his own. THAT person would have won – and been EXTREMELY unlikable to the RIGHT people.

            Based on the numbers, he was so EXTREMELY unlikable to the electorate in AL that they felt the “moderate” D was the better option.

            To be sure, one of the main reasons Moore is unlikable is because he didn’t follow GEOTUS Trump’s blueprint for dealing with hoax sexual misconduct allegations.

              What’s interesting there is that the INTERNET busted Gloria All-Red and her troupe of lying communists. Moore couldn’t find his way out of a paper bag on that one. People literally had to shake him to get him to fight back.

            I’m afraid Sheriff Joe is another one, his own conservative county wouldn’t reelect him because of all the lawsuits he had that the people are still paying for.

            He needs to bow out for the good of the country, is his ego bigger than his love of his country? What has driven him to do this after losing his sheriff election? He’s also too old for a 6 year term, he’s 86. I would dare say he is another splitter in the primary.

              If the only things you care about – and that at the expense of all else – is symbolic Legislative Branch opposition to Roe -v- Wade and removal of Ten Commandments monuments, then I see the appeal of Roy Moore.

              If you care about the significantly larger picture of Main Street over Wall Street, curtailing the influence of lobbyists and globalists [i.e., draining the Swamp], beating back the Bolshevist, America-hating handlers of the democrat wing of the so-called Uniparty [to say nothing of exposing and getting rid of the republican wing of the same, along with their big corporate handlers], restoring honor and integrity to our Department of Justice and our Intelligence services, eradicating the legislative and foreign policy legacy of the Bush clan, including their vassal kings Willie Clinton and the vile Obama-creature and restoring our reputation as not just a world leader but as a world leader to be proud of, and if you care about stopping the invasion of criminal aliens across our southern border, then Roy Moore has no appeal whatsoever.

              The term, “culture warrior” was invoked with reference to Moore. I don’t know that this is accurate. Moore cares about those two points of a single aspect of the culture, and he cares about them above all else. There is a lot more to the culture than just whether or not the Ten Commandments can be displayed on government/municipal property and laws governing whether or not a mother can choose to end a pregnancy.

              I believe the point was made on this website during the recent speculation over who GEOTUS Trump would choose as his second SCOTUS nominee: what’s the point of nominating someone who is, “pro-life” but who is soft on dealing with the criminal alien invasion?

              Continuing weakness on border security and the presence of criminal alien invaders will be the end of the culture long before abortion.

              Similarly, when the “uniparty” has no more influence and no more land/resource/commodities rights to peddle and when they finally tank the economy [and along with it our national security] with their unsustainable debt, the foreign interests that send military assets in to settle the bill aren’t going to care about ANY aspect of the culture; they’re surely not going to care that they’re tanks are rolling over the debris of a Ten Commandments monument.

      Michicagn Governor – GOP – Primary
      Schuette 479,177 50.81 %
      Calley 236,878 25.12 %
      Colbeck 122,629 13 %

      El-Sayed 327,235 30.49 %
      Thanedar 189,839 17.69 %

      The Guardian actually referred to El-Sayed as “The New Obama”. Barf. They were trying to pump him up like that Ocasio chick. I think the Michigan Governor term is 4 years so we’ll be spared hearing more about El-Sayed for at 4 years unless he runs for Congress.

        Even more exciting are the results for John James in the Senate race. He has a real chance of putting Debbie Stab-a-cow out to pasture where she belongs.

        I am concerned about the turnout numbers however. Dem put out about 100,000 more votes than R’s here in Michigan Looking forward to putting in some hours helping get out the vote in November. Some counties up north posted fewer votes than my precinct here in Battle Creek. But then we did have a couple of mileage items on the ballot, that usually increases turnout.

        Overall I think it was a good MAGA day here. Both candidates the President endorsed did very well. Schuette and James.

    • After reading the Ohio Secretary of State, my take away is..Each person with a provisional ballot has to present themselves to the Secretary of state office to verify the problem on their provisional ballot and correct it if possible; within 10 days. If not done, too bad. Really how many of the provisional ballots were legit and will these people show up at the courthouse to fix their ballot? That is 3,500+ people last I read. What this may do is give the dims a better idea how to calibrate the machines for a better dim outcome and schedule more people to be bused in that have paper work available that will not require a provisional ballots. It’s horrible to have to get down in the trenches and think like the opposition.

    Happy we won, not worried in the slightest. Here;s why.
    1) Seat will be for only about five months. Given that and the rain I might not have gotten out and voted.
    2) Notice something about Democrats and elections. In any kind of election that they care about and is local and “isolated”–meaning that it is not a bunch of national elections but only a few here and there, the Democrats do extremely well.

    This is for several reasons. They bus in their “volunteers” like crazy. They get donations from outside, exceeding by a lot what they would get if the election were ignored. These two factors alone make a big difference. If they give this much attention in the general election, then maybe ten other candidates get short shrifted. In the end it means we come out ahead.

    On top of which, in isolated elections it’s easier for them to do their voter fraud.

    I have served on Absentee Ballot Counting Boards in Ohio and in Tennessee, as I did the other night (TN Primary and County Election). We (the board, equal Dems and Repubs) are generally sworn in the morning and get to work sorting the envelopes mailed in with the marked ballots inside. Everything is counted and re-counted, the ballots go into precinct boxes. Sometimes ballots are damaged, so we prepare a blank ballot, with a Dem/Repub reading from the damaged ballot and the other person marking the ballot accordingly. The ovals are identified by #, so you do not even know the candidates’ name, unless you have a terrific memory. By around 5 PM the Board is done and we set up the counting machines which read the ballots and enter the votes in the correct precinct, again with both parties viewing to insure accuracy. At 7 PM when the polls close, the voting machines at each polling place run a tape with the final count at that place, including notations of write-ins, which in last week’s election were numerous, due to city council and school board races. The count from each polling place’s machines comes into the Board of Election headquarters electronically and our Absentee count is now entered at the same time. The paper trail tally in both places must match the electronic one.

    My point here is that Absentee Ballots, including those delivered to the Bd of E by mail on Election Day, are part of that grand total and not some separate thing held back and not counted unless there’s a close election. That’s totally bogus. I forgot to mention that the military absentee ballots are also included in this count. If you have requested an Absentee Ballot, you had better vote it or you will not be able to vote “early” or on Election Day, because the record will show you requested the absentee. It’s not rocket science, folks, and I don’t see how the Russians could have any way to meddle in this very cumbersome, but safe process. It would be great to get more volunteers of a like mind to help with this!

    Just got this from the Ohio GOP:

    The following statement may be attributed to Ohio Republican Party Chairman Jane Timken.

    “Tonight Troy Balderson and the constituents of Ohio’s twelfth congressional district have sent a message to Democrats and media pundits across the country. America is on the right track under President Trump and Republican leadership, and the so-called ‘blue wave’ is nothing more than wishful thinking. Troy Balderson will prove himself to be an incredible Congressman by working tirelessly for his district and come November, will win by an even bigger margin.”

    Background – ORP field program proves its effectiveness

    Since May 9, the Ohio Republican Party’s field program mobilized more than 1,000 volunteers in its efforts to secure Troy Balderson’s victory.

    In those three months, the ORP contacted nearly 900,000 voters in the 12th congressional district, including more 227,000 doors knocked and 664,000 phone calls.

    The party will double down on these field efforts as we head into November and deliver victories up and down the ticket.

    Ohio does not record voters as R or D unless they vote in the respective primary. So it is very difficult to come up with percentages of Ds or Rs coming out to vote.

    Furthermore, looking back at the 2014 election data in the 12th District,
    Registered Voters 530,612
    Registered R 172,309
    Voting R 150,573
    Registered D 77,170
    Voting D 61,360
    Not declared 281,133
    https://ohiovoterproject.org/voter-statistics

    Coming forward to the primary this year, in the 12th district
    112,353 voted for a democrat senate candidate (incumbant)
    but only
    45,001 voted for a democrate house candidate. (open special election)
    112,461 voted for a republican senate candidate
    but only 68,082 voted for a republican house candidate.(open special election)
    in both cases the same people were voted on for the general election but slightly fewer votes were cast.
    Downloaded and processed excel file from
    https://www.sos.state.oh.us/elections/election-results-and-data/2018-official-elections-results/
    (Note disagreement in registered voters between this primary data and general election data.)

    The unofficial results page says the 12th district has
    Registered Voters 544,532
    Voting R 101,574
    Voting D 99,820
    https://vote.ohio.gov/

    Looking back on past elections,
    The democrat high (presidential) was 2008, 152,234
    The democrat high (midterm) was 2006, 126,573
    the recent dem low was 2014, 61,360
    The republican high (presidential) was 2016, 251,266
    The republican high (midterm) was 2006, 198,723
    the recent(?) republican low was 2002, 116,982
    or the recent republican low was 2014, 150,573
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio%27s_12th_congressional_district

    In the same site, changes of party, or no incumbent,
    1980 the dem beat the incumbent 108,690 to 98,110
    1982 Kasich (R) beat the incumbent 88,335 to 82,753
    2000 Tiberi (R) beat the dem 139,242 to 115,432

    So when the seat is open, or the party switches there are fewer votes and the totals are a lot closer.

    That is exactly what we are seeing in the primary and in this special election. Especially since this is not a presidential election.

    Democrats are not at all time high turnout, even for midterms, but Republicans are lower than the past general election low
